Jason Jordan has been out of action since late January and his chances for an in-ring return seem to decrease with every passing month. At first, it was expected that the would be back in the fall and there were plans to team him up again with Chad Gable. That changed when it was realized that his neck issues were worse than originally thought.
These days, WWE is extremely careful when dealing with wrestlers that have head and neck issues. Jordan has been doing backstage work for the company and he is still hopeful that he can return to the ring one day. However, as Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio, things are not looking good for him.
Meltzer said the following about Jordan on Wrestling Observer Radio: “I don’t know that it’s over for sure but it’s been a long time. He’s been out for 10 months? Is that about right? It’s been a long time. Obviously, it’s not a good sign that he’s been out for this long.”
Jordan and Rollins dropped the Raw Tag Team Title in January. It was around that time when WWE began pulling back on what he could do in the ring. In February, Kurt Angle sent him home as a storyline cover because he needed neck surgery. The plan was for him to wrestle Rollins at WrestleMania and they were going to continue the father/son storyline with Angle but everything was dropped due to the neck issues.
History shows that similar neck injuries have ended careers of some of the biggest names in wrestling (Edge and Steve Austin, for example). Hopefully, that is not the case with Jordan because 30 years old is too young for a WWE Superstar to hang up his boots.
